On August 18th four Army Rangers, one NYC Fireman and Dan Hammack, founder of the Purple Heart Outdoor Tour arrived in Livermore for the 2011 blacktail deer hunt. This video shows the group arriving at Rao Ranch for the opening ceremony. The motorcade was organized and carried our by a Bay Area VFW group called the Warrior Watch Riders whose vow is that no soldier should come home unwelcomed.
The deer hunting begins today, August 19. Tomorrow the group will be hosted at the Livermore-Pleasanton Rod and Gun club, an informal barbecue and trap shoot. If you would like to attend the Saturday noon event, email me (just comment) and we’ll save a spot for you. You can bring your shotgun and join in the shooting.
The sponsors of tomorrow’s event are the Livermore-Pleasanton Rod and Gun Club, The Mule Deer Foundation and Cal Waterfowl.
